Leonard was spoken for almost right away! Penny was adopted less than 24 hours after arriving at the store, Sheldon in less than 48 hours. (This store is great for adoptions, but credit-where-credit-is-due; one of our amazing website elves had the bios up just hours after I submitted them.) Leonard’s adoption was delayed when the potential adopter claimed his kids were sick so we gave them a couple of days — which we rarely do. When he never showed up and never contacted us by the extended deadline, Leonard was referred for someone else and picked up on Sunday.
With the kittens off to a store, I decided I would take a little break. We’re doing another big rescue in a couple of weeks. I figured I’d take my time cleaning the foster room and be ready and waiting for a couple of those newbies. Yeah, right.
On Thursday afternoon I got an email; could I take two kittens who were at the vet? I picked them up on the way home from work on Friday. The catch was that I hadn’t touched the foster room and I was out at a play on Thursday night. I got home from the play about 11pm and then had to start cleaning the foster room! Luckily the Big Bang kittens had never been sick, so a cursory job would do! Still, vacuuming at 11pm is not my idea of a good time. Or doing a load of laundry (though YAY for ensuite laundry!!!!!). Or washing and disinfecting litter boxes. But what you gonna do?
I picked up these two cuties:
Apparently they’ve been having diarrhea issues, though they were fine at the vet and so far — knock wood — they’ve been fine here. They were from the last Quebec rescue and arrived with the names Delta and Gamma. But their original foster re-named them Cupcake and Donut. Ugh. Sorry. Can’t do it. So back to Delta and Gamma it is! I don’t think they’ll be here long. If their bowels stay stable for a week, it’s off for their spays and then probably into a store.
